Real estate Q&A: Can My Condo Board Enforce Speed Limit?

The question is posed if it is legal for a condo board to enforce a speed limit within the community and fine those that do not abide by it. The answer is yes, they may enforce it as they do any other rule of the community. These fines usually cannot go beyond $100, but as long as it is clearly stated in the rules they may fine a driver - both condo resident and their guests - for disobeying the rule. They cannot, however, detain the individual as a police officer would. They also may not issue a summons to a court. A tenant may argue their case before the board, but the decision does remain with them. Refusing to pay the fine may result in the loss of community privileges.
